React Native Module to select item picker Modal

React Native Picker Modal View

React Native Module to select item picker modal.

An alternative to Picker and PickerIOS components with an unified API and consistent look & feel on both plaforms. It’s fully configurable and includes built-in support for text search and alphabetical index. Ideal for longer lists not suitable for “wheel-pickers”.

Getting started

$ npm install react-native-picker-modal-view --save


$ yarn add react-native-picker-modal-view
